Two Styles Of Denim You Need To Try Now

As America’s Favorite Denim Brand, we pride ourselves in offering a wide range of denim choices for our customer, from the skinniest Jegging to the Boho Flare to the modern Kick Boot. A few denim styles rise to the top of our favorites list every year, and this fall we just can’t get enough of the Tomgirl Jean and the Dark Destroyed Jegging! We’ve received tons of #AEOSTYLE pictures showing how you’ve styled these fits, so it’s no secret that you love them, too. We’ve gathered some of our favorite looks featuring the Tomgirl Jean and Dark Destroyed Jegging to spread the style inspiration below.

The Tomgirl Jean
This is the jean that everyone will be talking about this fall. We love the down-to-earth vibe of the Tomgirl Jean, our new relaxed fit. With a low-slung waist, a loose fit through the leg and a tapered ankle, these jeans are quickly becoming one of our favorite go-to denim pieces, especially for the fall season. Keep your look structured by pairing the Tomgirl Jean with a button-down shirt or a leather jacket, or keep it simple by adding a pair of sneakers. No matter how you wear them, you’ll be having more fun than the boys.

Dark Destroyed Denim
Although dark jeggings are always in style, a great pair of Dark Destroyed Denim will take your outfit to the next level this season. Destructed and mended destroyed details update our sexiest, skinniest fit, and the dark hue makes any color and pattern pop, from your basic white t-shirt to fall plaids. Pairing destroyed denim with heels is a great way to add some edge to your go-to outfit, too.

How to Wear the Tomgirl Short with Vanilla Extract

Our Tomgirl denim is all about the relaxed fit and destroyed details. The Destroyed Tomgirl Short takes this casual cool look to a whole new level with its midi length and frayed hem.

What Inspired Nichole’s Look:
“I live in distressed shorts all summer long and these tom girl shorts are in high rotation. They’re lightweight with ample stretch making them comfortable for all sorts of fun summer activities. I was drawn to this particular fit because they strike the perfect balance between regular shorts and the relaxed boyfriend style, which I’ve found to be universally flattering. Since my style is pretty casual, I decided to pair them with a favorite plaid button down, but they also look great with a plain white tee or light sweater!”How to Wear the Tomgirl Short with Vanilla Extract

What Inspired Sara’s Look:
Now I don’t know about you, but I tend to wear the same pair of denim until they absolutely fall apart because I dread going “jean’s shopping.” While my stature is petite, I have muscular thighs and calves. I am learning to appreciate my curves, but have a tough time finding jeans with the best balance of stretch, comfort and fit. Recently, I’ve discovered and fallen in love with American Eagle’s denim, especially their jeggings. They are available in different waistlines, washes, and lengths while maintaining the most wearable stretch and control. Ah, I can’t rave about them enough. I’ve collected a few of the different denim shades and explored their high-waisted options.

The lighter wash is extremely versatile and I adore the distressed accents to add some edge to your look. They are great for a casual day shopping, stylish for a lunch date with your gal pals, yet relaxed enough to wear for a road trip. Jeans are a necessity for these winter months ahead and look amazing paired with boots and a shaggy knit jacket!
